Tyically those DLLs are not created using .NET (no class libararies). You
may want to write an "empty" C++ DLL that includes the icons as Win32
resources. You can create such a DLL using Microsoft Visual C++ .NET. VC++
..NET comes with a resource editor which will make creating the ressources
easier. Maybe you can embed the icons into a .NET Class Libarary DLL by
compiling it from the command line ("vbc") and specifying a Win32 resource
file after the "/win32resource" switch.
